This chapter demonstrates that Beck’s philosophy and clinical observations make the perfect case for including work on mental imagery within the remit of cognitive therapy (CT). To support this contention the chapter look at the ways in which Beck has embodied the attitude of the scientist-practitioner: espousing method rather than theory, systematically collecting data, attempting an integrative approach to psychotherapy, remaining curious and pragmatic about a wide range of phenomenology in psychopathology, and developing strategies that work for clients.
